Day +47: Realness #100DaysDIEP
Yeah, it’s not pretty. This is a photo of my left hip tonight. It shows the edge of my abdominal incision (where the tissue was taken from to make my breast) and the allergic reaction that I’ve had over the last few days. I’m not sure what’s caused it. These blistery spots are clustered on each hip, run all along my abdomen scar, across my tummy, and around the transplanted disc of skin of my DIEP’d breast. It’s unbelievably itchy, painful and weepy. But, you know, I can deal with that. I’m more scared it’s going to compromise the healing of my scars or get infected. So we came home from our trip a bit early. I’m off to see my GP tomorrow to get it checked out. But in the meantime, I’m a bit fecked off with it all.
